UTSUNOMIYA

Utsunomiya (population of over 500,000) is the prefectural capital and the largest city in the Kitakanto district.

Around the town are many stone buildings and monuments because good-quality stone is found in the Ooya area in the western part of the city. The history of Ooya stone mining can be found at the Ooya Stone Museum. In particular, the remains of underground mining are awesome. A dynamic and mysterious underground labyrinth is created by the huge mine of about 20,000 square meters, with an average depth of 30 meters and 60 meters at the deepest level.
